Periodicals Reading Room
PL: Czytelnia Czasopism

The Collection of Periodicals is composed of ca. 400 current titles of periodicals, and 550 current titles of foreign ones. The Collection is divided into 2 parts:

  1. Issues from the last 3 years are freely available on site in the Periodicals Reading Room. The Aleph Catalogue indicates Czytelnia Czasopism as their location.
  2. Issues older than 3 years are located in the main store rooms. They are available on site in the General Reading Room after the submission of the library order slip with the call number of the demanded item. The Aleph Catalogue indicates Księgozbiór Główny as their location.

Apart from the traditional paper version of periodicals, the SGH Library offers you free access to ca. 30,000 titles of foreign journals in the on-line form. You may consult our A-to-Z list of periodicals to check whether the title you are looking for is available in the SGH Library, and if so, in which database. The detailed information about ways of access to every database subscribed by the SGH Library you will find on the Electronic Resources page or in the Reference Centre (ground floor, room 10).
